The Miracle Worker
By William Gibson and directed by Jeremy Tow
One of the 20th century's most inspiring stories - The Miracle Worker is based on the true story of Helen Keller. Unable to see or hear, Helen lives in a world of silence and frustration. But through the determination of her inventive teacher, Annie Sullivan, Helen discovers the power to communicate.
This play opened on Broadway in 1959 and was an unmitigated success in its original two year run starring Anne Bancroft as Annie and Patty Duke as Helen. Both actresses retained their roles in the 1962 Oscar winning feature film.
